Singing Crickets Slowed Down Sound Like A Boys Quoir

Composer Jim Wilson has recorded the sound of crickets and then slowed down the recording, revealing something so amazing. The crickets sound like they are singing the most angelic chorus in perfect harmony. Though it sounds like human voices, everything you hear in the recording is the crickets themselves.
The recording contains two tracks played at the same time: The first is the natural sound of crickets played at regular speed, and the second is the slowed down version of crickets’ voices (along with the pitch adjusted).

Giraffe Manor

Giraffe Manor is one of Nairobi’s most iconic historical buildings dating back to the 1930s and is reminiscent of the early days of Europeans in East Africa. Whilst the building itself resonates with the past, very much present is the herd of resident Rothschild giraffe who tend to visit the Manor in the mornings and evenings to greet guests and sniff out some snacks before venturing out into their sanctuary of 140 acres. From 1974, Giraffe Manor was the home of Jock and Betty Leslie-Melville, whose lifelong ambition became the preservation of this beautiful and threatened species of giraffe.

Face-O-Mat Is Infinity Great

Since late last year Swiss artist Tobias Gutmann has been traveling the world with his portable analog portrait booth dubbed the Face-o-mat. Customers take a seat in front of a small window, much like a photobooth, and then adjust some levers to determine how their portrait will look: color or black and white, natural or facelift, classical or avant-garde. Then, for a small fee, Gutmann works his illustration magic and creates a strange abstract portrait in less than three minutes.

A Tribe Called Quest - Midnight Marauders Album Cover Shoot & Samples

November 9th marked the 20th(!) anniversary of the release of A Tribe Called Quest‘s Midnight Marauders. The third in the trilogy of classic LPs that kicked off ATCQ’s recording career – after 1990′s People’s Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm and 1991′s The Low End Theory  MM also possesses one of the most iconic album covers in hip-hop history. Featuring the group’s signature striped female figure amidst the floating, headphone-clad heads of dozens of hip-hop luminaries spread over three different (red, black and green bordered) incarnations, Midnight Marauders‘ unforgettable cover design was the creative brainchild of Jive Records head art director Jean Kelly with assistance from fellow art director Nick Gamma. This, after the ambitious original cover concepts from Quest leader Q-Tip were abandoned.
